I am getting ready to make this my next project and heard there was a pattern correction. What was the correction? I downloaded the corrected pattern and didn't see any difference from the one I printed. Also, at the end of Row 2 on the blanket, the pattern says to put 2 double crochets into the last stitch? Is this correct or did they mean 1 double crochet? Thanks.

I have been trying for several days to print out the pattern for the easy baby blanket and hat set. I can't get it to print. My sister - in - law even tried on her computer and it still didn't work. Is there any way I can get a copy of this pattern sent to me. We are expecting our 7th great - grandchild in June. Thanks Marian P.S. I would be glad to pay someone a little somthing to print it and send it to me. Thanks.

Can anyone tell me what the UK equivalent yarn is for this blanket, please? Thanks

What do the abbreviations mean? ch is the only one I can make out. I'd like to try this for my new grandbaby that's on the way. Thanks in advance for any help.

Pattern is nothing like the picture you have here

karenah21

It seems that this yarn is no longer available

I managed to work it out for the 6th row which is in fact the repeat of the 2nd row I think what was confusing is the numbers on the side 1.2.3 which is not the row number Hope this helps others

Im also having probs understanding from row 7 did row 6 no probs now I dont understand ??? Inst say repeat rows 2-5 surely that cant be right should it be 3-6

mariehindmarsh 6270473

Very cute baby in the picture, & I'm liking the blanket so far. I'm having trouble though at Row 7, which says "Rows 6 -65" - & says to repeat rows 2-5 fifteen times. Should it be to repeat rows 3-6 fifteen times?
